September 3, 2021

Congratulations to Assistant Professors Lucas and Belecki for receiving a NSF grant. Congressman McEachin had this to say, “I am thrilled to announce these two grants for VCU to fund critical, ground-breaking, and environmentally-focused research,” said Rep. McEachin (VA-04). â€œAs climate change continues to precipitously warm the earth, it is imperative that we can predict how it will impact plants and, therefore, entire ecosystems. Additionally, as demands for certain products continue to grow rapidly, we must do what we can to produce them in a benign manner to minimize potential damages to our Earth. I applaud VCU for its work on these efforts and know these funds will be put to good use.”
